I was sad to hear that too since I just picked up my M3 and wanted to get it clear bra there.

After some research I found a place near me in the OC area called "Protech". I will be getting it done (hopefully) this week and will let you know how it turns out.

I like the sound of that! He seems to have a good name on the Ferrari boards.

+2.
I just did my clear bra with him.
(I have white E90M3 in Irvine, he did about 2 wks ago)
The best work I've seen and a good guy.
He wrapped all corners so the edges don't show.

I was about to recommend him then saw everyone recommending him.
Crazy.

i thought you had it done at premier before they closed (or was that just the tint). I'm still trying to decide between Bhane vs Ultimate Shield.

I did have them do the clear bra and the tint. I have a new bumper that needs to be done now.

Well, it's no surprise as more and more shops can do close to their quality of work at 60% of the price.

I must have been under a rock. I did not know they closed. Premier did great work on my car, but now I also wonder who will do the warranty work if I need work?

^ Like the poster above mentioned they always seemed to be booked and busy. I wonder what happened and why no official statement or response from Premier, I think they are still on the boards...

Before they opened up down here, they'd schedule trips down to SoCal every so often.

Sad to lose a quality shop down here...now where to take my '13?

not trying to speak for tech, but I have a few spots on the very edge which showed a little lifting. really small spots, so I never bothered to call him to come out to fix it.

what appeared different than Premier's work was that the entire front end (painted surface) is not covered. he cuts some relief edges so portions of the deeply concaved curves are not covered.

Check out Protective Film Solutions in Santa Ana. Ryan and his team are very knowledgable and professional. And, he provides a nice loaner car for the day if you don't want to wait in his shop.

I had my a car done by Premier before and found Ryan to be equally competent with even better pricing.

Pretty sure they would not have closed due to "lack of" business or customers. I've been a customer/going to them for over 4+ years now. Bar none- Their work, customer service and professionalism sets the bar for everyone else in the industry.

^ Thanks Wasabi, This is important information because that was one of the things that Premeir did very well-full coverage even in some of the toughest corners and angles.

^Thanks for the referral, do you recall if he was able to get the tight corners and to lay down without lifting, discoloring, or cutting relief edges?
